Honey, I'm serious. Just look up "honey and mrsa" (mrsa is antibiotic resistant staph the worst kind) and all sorts of stuff pops up. Our government has reports of it on the public record webpage (reports from hospitals with success from UK and Germany). Odd how they never mentioned it or researched it. Anyway, I've used it and it works. Key is to not let it dry on your skin and to get raw honey most likely from an organic store who buys local.
